You can use it as a voltage meter, to ensure a circuit is dead before working on it, or that something is getting voltage.

A clamp on ammeter is great, you can clamp it on a wire coming out of your panel and see exactly how much current it is drawing. You could clamp it on one of your mains and see how much current your whole house is drawing. I don't know how low the current measurements are, but you might be able to see how many amps your PC, toaster, refrigerator, or coffee pot uses. All without interrupting the circuit.

Total shill post. The OP has been blitzing the forums with near-nonsense one liner posts all morning in order to be able to post his deal. And I would guess that the vast majority of those really quick up votes are also from shill accounts.

Slickdeals is really losing its legitimacy by allowing such accounts to post and/or vote on deals.

A certain breaker keeps tripping. Remove the panel cover. Set meter to amps and clamp around the wire coming off of that breaker. You then read the amp load on that circuit. If you are close or exceeding the load for that breaker that could be why. You would then try plugging in devices to a different circuit. One example would be trying to run a toaster oven and a coffee maker at the same time. Or other countertop appliances on the same circuit.

the clamp portion measures Amps through a live wire. the probes measure voltage. someone already mentioned why to use the amp meter. the probes are good for checking voltage at circuits and u can see how good a battery is (voltage drops over its lifespan)

The shills come out at night................the shills come out at night................

As for use, I note that it (clamp wise) is designed for only one 'side' of an AC circuit. That is, if you put this on the cable coming into your computer, most likely not going to work.

Also, I don't trust these cheap China things to offer real protection to the user, thus I suggest wearing electrical safe gloves while working with it.

Do you have any suggestion for electrical safe gloves?

Hmmm, I've seen users on other sites get banned for doing that. For example, a user, ironically with the same name, has been banned from other sites [not going to name] for apparently doing the same thing:

The unit has built in safety features which protect against overheat, over current and over charging and the device switches itself off when fully charged.

Disregarding the fact that OP is a complete shill, is $7.20 even a good deal for something like this? I wouldn't trust its safety, nor would I trust the accuracy.

IMO most people would be better off spending more on a meter from a reputable test equipment brand that won't blow up in their hands. I'd think twice about this deal, especially if you plan on using this to measure mains.
